CdM: Arbitration in L1 mode, the red cards will rain

Before the start of the 2022 World Cup, Pierluigi Collina announced the color regarding arbitration. The chairman of the FIFA Referees Committee expects to see many red cards drawn during the competition.

French representatives for the 2022 World Cup, Stéphanie Frappart and Clément Turpin may arrive with an advantage over certain counterparts. Since the start of the season, the two Ligue 1 referees have played in a league that stands out for the high number of red cards. The slightest dangerous tackle very often results in an expulsion.

We will be very tough on tackles and there will be red cards. There are three situations of dangerous interventions: limit actions at the level of the engagement, raising the foot very high in a risky way, even if it is the player who has the ball, and protecting the ball with his body and sticking out his elbows too much. »

Simulations in the sights of FIFA

We will also be very strict on the actions where players throw themselves. This is unacceptabledropped the former official. We recommended that the referees be very rigorous with the loss of time, and to add the additional time necessary to compensate. Four years ago in Russia we said exactly the same thing and there were added times of six or seven minutes. The goal is to provide a better show. “As in Ligue 1, the matches of the World Cup can therefore switch at any time depending on the interventions of the players.
